We visited The Court in early September for our 5th wedding anniversary as something special to do in Rome. We had seen the pictures on Instagram, and it did not disappoint. We had a lovely table that was directly overlooking the Colosseum which made for...some lovely pictures and memories. The drinks are expensive, but totally worth it! I had a classic pornstar martini, which was delicious. I also had an Instagram Model, which came in a camera, which was a really cool touch. Although the cocktails are expensive, you are given 'snacks' which actually was much more than snacks! We were given mini burgers, sushi, homemade bread and breadsticks which was all delicious. My friend also ordered a drink (trying to be adventurous) which she didn't like, the service was excellent because they swapped the drink for her free of charge, which a lot of places wouldn't do. It is certainly worth booking, we arrived for opening at 6pm and by 8pm when we left it was totally full. It is also worth noting that you only get 2 hours for a sitting, we would have sat there all night! Will definitely return!More

Thank you so much to all the hard working staff at the court for your hospitality. We had pre-dinner drinks and aperitif here, and although it is expensive, it is so worth it for the view and if you really want to treat yourself. The...cocktails were also lovely. I hope to return one day, thank you!More

I visited Rome with my Wife for our Honeymoon and had heard about The Court and its wonderful Cocktails so a visit was on the cards and it did not dissapoint. Everything was perfect from the Cocktails to the service and surroundings it really is...a Magical place. When you order a drink you also get the finest delicious snacks brought down to enjoy with your cocktails and I thought this was a really nice touch. I would recommend trying the Paloma cocktail as if like me you like to be adventurous. Finally I would like to give a special mention to the main man Matteo Zed who made our night from start to finish the service was incredible and speaking with Matteo was like talking to an old friend as he is very down to earth. We will visit The Court next time we are in Rome. Untill Next TimeMore

Excellent quality of ingredientes (bitters, spirits, distillates), professionals bartenders with skills and advanced knowledge of mixology. They use homemade syrup. The attention for the customer is very careful. The sight is magnificent. One Tip: I suggest to add a plate with the description of Ludus...Magnus.More

This cocktail bar was a part of our accomodation and easy to sit down to. It has to say, while drinking a glass of champagne and overlooking has a thing.. But it is so overprissed this small bar. One coca cola is 18 euros and...I will not tell you what the glass of champagne costs because my husband didnt tell me too and otherwise I didnt take it. It is tourism overpricing at it top! We shot some cool family pictures.. that is for sure but when you are feeling romantically. Buy a good bottle of Champagne (check out my recommedation for restaurant Contrario) and watch the sunset from the parc next to the Colloseum. That will give you a better experience than The Court Cocktail bar.More

This beautiful bar in Palazzo Manfredi is a hidden gem in Rome! They don’t take reservations, so we showed up 5 minutes before they opened (6:30pm), waited for 10 minutes and were taken back to be seated. Drinks may seem expensive to some, but to...me you’re paying for the experience! We bought two drinks for about €30, views + snacks included! They give you a lot of snacks, which made the drink prices more than worth it. If you’re in Rome, I highly recommend this “aperitivo” spot before dinner. Service was a little slow compared to some other spots in Rome, but at least we had good views!More

Saw the courtyard after walking past the Colosseum. I was dressed casually in ripped Jean's and jumper but they welcomed us in with no question. Receptionist walked us to the bar and introduced us to the barman who shook our hand. The vitamin cocktail I...had was beautifully presented and the view from the terrace at night of the Colosseum was stunning. The receptionist said goodbye to us and she was very nice. Ideal place for honeymooners and couples wanting a top class romantic evening. Highly recommend it as a perfect end to a day in Rome.More

We were a little dubious about coming here due to the very mixed reviews. But we didnt experience any issues, the staff were extremely polite and attentive, a lot of small snacks appear on your table. It is pretty steep, there's no denying that, but...it's an amazing setting.More

$19-$25 roughly. On the pricey side but when typically served with high quality olives, sliders, etc. the price evens out.
